Skullcandy earphones are great for music with heavy bass and is excellent with sound quality but they never last more than a month. I previously owned three variations of Skullcandy and they all die out within a month.
I tend to go through earbuds faster than I go through sunglasses.. But Ive had a pair of SkillCandy Somethings?, I dont know the model, for about 1 year now because someone left them in my car. The volume piece on the cord is broken in half and you can see the circuit board but they have been that way since I found them and they have worked perfectly the entire time. They could sound better, but I've bought worse sounding ear buds for more than these probably cost.
